Rosary students compete for App design

Two Rosary students have won second place in the Congressional App Challenge in Orange County. Aidan Crowley '17, and Aliana Garcia '17, created an app named "ePoints" that allows teachers and students to keep track of extra credit points in a quick, efficient system.

The three winning entries were:

1st: Los Altos High School

2nd: Rosary Academy  

3rd: Troy High School.

The Congressional app challenge is a competition aimed at encouraging U.S. high school students to learn how to code by creating their own applications. The Challenge is intended to highlight the value of computer science and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and encourage students to engage in these fields. By encouraging and recognizing our nation’s young programming talent, Congress hopes to shine a light on the growing importance of these skills.

Their app was also entered into the #EngineerThat competition, and is in the TOP 5 in the Nation! The winner of the #EngineerThat app contest is by popular vote online, so we encourage you to click the link below and cast your vote for "ePoints" by February 23!

Please share it  with your friends and family, through Social Media. Bring home the win for Aidan and Aliana and Rosary Academy.
